The Universal Exposition of Seville (Expo ‘92) took place from Monday, April 20 to Monday, October 12, 1992 on La Isla de La Cartuja (Cartuja Island), Seville, Spain.

Expo'92 was organized to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus(1492-1992).

Expo'92 Seville was widely known for its massive site, held at the Isla de la Cartuja, reputed site of reference for Columbus for his voyage to the New World, and required at least several days to visit most of the Pavilions. It was also known for its numerous spectacular gates and bridges, and the diversity of transport within the Expo site from bus to ferry boat, to cable car and monorail.

Señora usted no lo comprende, es que tengo que hacer estas fotografías porque si no olvido, olvido todo lo que veo, no tengo memoria fotográfica, mi memoria es mi cámara, mis recuerdos más lúcidos son mis fotos, son un puerta que me abre a la historia que mi cerebro no puede contar por sí solo, como aquel día que había una niña con chándal rosa en las ruinas de la Expo, y esa niña salió un momento, y después se fue, se escondió, pero yo lo recuerdo porque lo vuelvo a ver, en mis fotos, y eso es importante, ¿comprende usted?

Alamillo Bridge
The Bridge was designed and built between 1989 and 1992 during the Expo'92 in Seville by architect Santiago Calatrava.
The initial idea involved creating a twin brother, an identical bridge tilted in the opposite direction on the other channel of the Guadalquivir River. However, only one was erected, because the budget was not sufficient to cover the pair. — in Seville, Spain.
